Tip Tuesday: Easy Polish Removal

I know I've never done one before, but I'm calling today Tip Tuesday because I have an easy nail polish removal tip for you today! I know I have been a supporter of the tin foil method in the past, and the one cotton ball method as well. This method is my new go-to method which combines the two together! I use it every single time I remove polish, glitter or otherwise. It uses one cotton ball and a set of fingertip grips. Enjoy! :)

Start by unrolling your cotton ball:

Rip the unrolled cotton ball into fingernail sized pieces:

I bought my fingertip grips at Walmart for around $3.50 in the office supply section. I actually bought two sets of them so I could have enough little ones because some of the big ones were too big:

Soak the piece of cotton ball with remover and then place in on your nail. I like to hang it over the edge a little and then press it down to seal it around my nail:

Then, slide the fingertip grip over the cotton ball! Continue this process until all of your fingers are covered:

I usually let them sit for about two minutes. Then, I take one fingertip grip off at a time. I press down on the cotton and slide it off of my nail. It is the best method I've ever used and it works so well!

  1. Wouldn't the remover eat through the plastic fingergrips? Love the idea, but since I only use acetone, I'm afraid they wouldn't hold up very long :)

  2. It could! I use remover with acetone, but not pure acetone. I've had these for a few months now and they're holding up just fine!

  6. Great - had heard of this system but all the office product stores are gone from my area - good to know you found the rubber fingers (which used for years working through HS and college to protect from paper cuts and also make it easier to sort through papers getting them ready for filing. Good to know you found hem at Wallmart

  11. :D sure thing! I got the big bottle in September and I'm only halfway through it. I've used it nearly every day, five days a week since then. That big bottle really lasts a while!
